Go into Options>Screen-Keyboard>scroll down to Conv. Key Opens and select an option. Should work...

Another reason to own a pc.
you will unless you have everything backed up. The store pc may not want to and you may not want to have your personal data left there.
OTA applications should be easy but ones that load via the desktop manager wont be there unless the store did all the work for you originally.
